The cauliflower ear is one of the marks of the BJJ fighter, but it need not be so. One of the first things to do when your ear tears is to put ice on it and then drain the blood as fast as possible, because the less time the blood stays inside the ear, the bigger the chances of keeping the ear normal. Remember that Saulo is an expert who has decades of experience, so Gallerr advises not to try this at home.
Check out a video of six-time world champion Saulo Ribeiro draining the ear of one of his students.
Do you have cauliflower ears? Does it bother you, or is it more like a badge of honor?
